Concrete Tilt and Parking for New Tanger Outlet Mall

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Many months ago, NRMCA received a note from Sean Van Delist, formerly of the Cement Council of Texas, letting us know about a Tanger Outlet being built in Houston. Follow up confirmed it would be designed with concrete, reports NRMCA South Central Senior National Resource Director Vance Pool. He said that the concrete parking has been placed and the tilt walls are now being erected.

"This is the most cost effective way to build retail," Pool said. "Concrete parking costs about half as much as asphalt to own. Tilt up construction is very fast and the economic benefits are understood in many markets."

But it is not enough just to have a specification for concrete, Pool stressed. Work done by NRMCA producer member Cemex in partnership with the concrete subcontractor led to these cubic yards going down. Local involvement is key to closing the deal. Tanger Outlets operate strip centers throughout the U.S.
